1. The true West starts in the Rocky Mountains...

2. ...with melting snow forming creeks and rivers...

3. ...which can theoretically be surfed all the way to the sea.

4. The rivers carve the landscapes along the way...

5. ...creating terrain for limitless adventure.

6. The land between the Rockies and the coast is patched with deserts...

7. ...and long expanses of empty highway.

8. You eventually make it to the Pacific Northwest...

9. ...where this doesn't keep anyone indoors (and where no one carries an umbrella).

10. Northwesterners accept the rain, because it creates scenery like this.

11. Water that started in the mountains eventually flows through the Coastal Range...

12. ...and pours into the Pacific.

13. Heading south, you arrive in San Francisco...

14. ...where the fog rolls in and out like the tide.

15. And as you wind down the coast, the skies clear...

16. ...the sun shines brighter, and you end up on the beaches of Southern California.
